‘Summer House’: Lindsay Hubbard Explains Why Hannah Berner’s Psychic Rumor ‘Sucks’
Lindsay Hubbard from Summer House was pretty activated over the messy rumor Hannah Berner tried to start, insisting that the psychic made her do it was really no excuse.
Berner told Paige DeSorbo that her psychic shared that Luke Gulbranson and Hubbard had hooked up and perhaps could have already hooked up in the past. That meant Berner was implying that Hubbard had possibly cheated on boyfriend Stephen Traversie. Plus Traversie and Gulbranson were friends too. Hubbard recently said that Berner’s psychic dish was a lame attempt to attack her character, but it was also a dig at psychics and life coaches in general.
Lindsay Hubbard viewed the psychic rumor to be an attack on her character
Hubbard said Berner’s gossip was in bad taste for a slew of reasons. “It was a huge stretch, I don’t think there is one person in the universe who thought that was true,” she said on the Hot Takes & Deep Dives podcast.
“Here’s why it sucks,” she began. “I actually do believe in life coaches and psychics to a degree, or certain palm readers, or tarot card readers. And it kind of tainted my idea of that whole industry. Number one, why is your psychic talking about me? Isn’t a psychic supposed to tell you about your life? Number two, I think that maybe you should replace your psychic with a life coach.”
“Number three, so now you’re accusing me of cheating [on her boyfriend] and I’m a fiercely loyal person,” she added. “That’s what hurt the most. To attack my character out of thin air, when not even Hannah believed [the rumor] as this was happening. So you’re attacking my character just for the fun of it. I do not cheat on boyfriends, and that’s hurtful.”
All’s well did not end well with Lindsay Hubbard and Hannah Berner
Host Jess Rothschild has a theory that Berner was playing Amanda Batula and Paige DeSorbo against Hubbard last season. While Berner was running the game, she’d never take any ownership of the fallout between the friends. “And somehow she got away with it,” Rothschild added.
Hubbard shook her head. “I don’t know how she [gets] away with it,” she said. “I can’t honestly speak to her psychosis. My question is – exactly. I was really upset after last year’s reunion and wondering the same thing. Like you know … I’m just not gonna get involved with Hannah’s drama.”
“Because last year I defended her and it got me in trouble,” Hubbard added. Hubbard gave Berner an icy welcome this season. The two weren’t exactly speaking after Berner went on a podcast and trash talked Hubbard. Hubbard iced Berner out the rest of the year and the two hadn’t seen each other until they arrived at the house.
Berner and Hubbard made amends during the beginning of the season, but it doesn’t seem like the peace is longstanding.
The Summer House Season 5 finale airs on Thursday, April 22 at 9/8c on Bravo.
